TwistyWristy I finally got to test out the visor yesterday. I must say it definitely fits my needs. I rode during direct sunlight time and then during nighttime.

It transitioned very quickly during the day, which was total sunlight. Item description said full transition takes approximately 2 minutes but I found it even quicker then that. It was not as dark as some visors that are advertised as ‘dark’, ‘smoked’, or visors that appear to be very dark. With a mirror in front of me, I could barely see my face inside the helmet. At the same time, my visibility was great! The visor also being UV protection, my eyes did not hurt as they kind of did with the stock clear visor non UV protected.

During the night it obviously transitioned back to clear within a very reasonable amount of time, with clear being as clear as a stock clear visor.

I was pretty impressed by this visor an am very happy with it. Hopefully this test helps anyone else wondering whether this type of visor is worth the $169 price tag. For me it was!

Thanks to the responses I got back as they were accurate regarding the description.

That qualifies as a medical issue and is understandable.

By the way, #1 was good gloves... BUY GOOD GLOVES. I was rear ended by an SUV on December 19, 2017 and were it not for my gloves... well, lets just say I probably wouldn't need to wear gloves any longer (the doctors said that I would almost certainly have lost both my hands).

Anyhow, congrats on the purchase. I love my Shoei and the transition visor is amazing.

Yeah I thought about it that way too as an investment. I did not want to carry a second visor with me, either clear or dark. I will see how it is tomorrow as I finally have some time to test it.

As for gloves, I am glad to hear they saved you from what happened to you. I have some decent ones but they are aging quickly.

I am working on my next upgrade, a new jacket!

Lol no welding here. Yeah I just take the reviews for things in stride and try to see what stands out overall. Thanks for the info comparison to another brand visor.
